  1. “If you’ve ever used IE you’ll know that it cannot possibly have the best HTML5 performance of the browsers.”

    This seems like a shaky premise. By all accounts, IE 8 and IE 9 are significantly different to IE < 8 in terms of standards compliance. It seems a little unkind to suggest that donating test cases is 'fiddling the results'; it's certainly no worse than what Mozilla and Google do all the time by creating their own Javascript test suites, which their own browsers then just happen to win.
